American Taylor claims Classic title

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Mike Taylor of Pennsylvania came out tops at the Bermuda Open Tenpin Classic Tournament which concluded at the Warwick Lanes on the weekend.

Taylor pocketed $3,500 for his efforts as the stepladder format for the top five bowlers produced some low scores.

Bermuda's Levinc Samuels and John York of South Carolina battled it out to the end with Samuels ending the match four pins higher than York.

Samuels then climbed the ladder to take on third place Andrew Shultz, with Samuels again winning by four pins.

David Maycock, who finished the qualifying in second place, was next on the list for Samuels, but Maycock didn't give Samuels a chance as he tore up the lanes with a 226 to Samuels' 168 win to advance to meet first-placed Taylor.

Maycock provided a good challenge but came up short by ten pins as Taylor won the championship, bowling a 192 to Maycock's 182.

The tournament for the high average bowlers concluded over the weekend with a record entry of 33, including six women.

To qualify, bowlers had to bowl ten games in two, five-game blocks starting on Saturday.

Competition was fierce with bowlers trying to make the top 12 cash positions.

The top five then proceeded to the stepladder format for the BOTC Championship.
